Default Rampant Processes

64-Bit Processor
Windows XP 64 Bit Edition

During normal operations of my computer, when I look at the Task Manager, I notice that I have multiple copies of multiple processes running. Some of them are have a *32 after the second process (or both); which I am guessing is the 32 Bit compliant version of that process. But some of them are exactly the same.

Two with *32:

Doubled, On With *32:

Six Occurances:

The memory usage of these processes ranges from 3,000 K to 50,000 K. I have looked into why my svchost.exe would multiple so many times, but I have been unable to find a solution. It is not located anyplace on my computer other than:
so i do not think it is a virus or spyware. I have run avast! and trendmicro and do not get any hits.

On thing i do notice though is that when i go into command promt and type "tasklist /svc" i get "ERROR: An internal error occurred."

I can post a HiJack This log if needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

apache- a downloaded program that makes web servers(you may end it if you like)
CLI- an ATI display program( you may end one if you like, probably the non-32)
CTFmon-Windows XP(DO NOT END, nothing will happen if you do, but this may hurt the computer later)
rundll- i have no clue, but its prolly needed with that name
svchost- a network host(if you close, your plaing russian roulette, one of them will shut off your compy)
